Weekly Digest

This week I’m totally digging:

Same

Tessa Thompson

Tessa as Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok was absolutely boss, I loved her. She’s always great, particularly in Dear White People (2014) and I really hope to see more of her.

The film itself wasn’t bad either and really made me laugh a lot. Definitely one of my favourite MCU movies so far – adding Taika Waititi to the mix was inspired.

Also, bonus but FUCK ME:

Pwoar: Ragnarok

Sugar & Vice Christmas 2017 Collection

Featuring this insanely good leg lamp necklace which may be on its way into my loving arms as we speak…

S&V is definitely one of my very favourite small businesses and one I’ve been shopping with for an age. I basically just want to own everything.

Fucking MEN

Alias Grace

Based on the book by Margaret Atwood, Netflix has just released this TV adaptation which looks pretty good tbh. Jill and I are both excited for it.

Here’s IMDB’s synopsis, if you don’t know:

Based on the true story of Grace Marks, a housemaid and immigrant from Ireland who was imprisoned in 1843, perhaps wrongly, for the murder of her employer Thomas Kinnear.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer 

I thought mother! might be the weirdest film I would see this year but now I’m not so sure.

TKOASD is super strange but also seriously good and full of Yorgos Lanthimos‘ signature black humour. There’s not a lot I can say without giving things away and I think going in with little knowledge can only be a good thing.

Nicole Kidman is brilliant as are the actors playing her children (Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic), while Barry Keoghan plays the part of Martin perfectly: insidious, spookily calm and actually quite repellent. I definitely recommend catching this at the cinema if you get the chance.

What are you digging this week?

  1. Alias Grace, yessssssssss!!! I loved it so much and only regret more men didn’t die. Status quo for me, I guess.
    Really looking forward to Thor but TBH I’m so full of rage that I don’t know if I can spend an entire film looking at men right now. Tessa Thompson does look fucking badass, and I’d prob relate to Cate Blanchett’s character A LOT.
